Organised by the ÖWV, the AZ-DWV, Christian Back and Zita and Tibor Gyerkó, the location of the event was the Grand Hotel, that can be found on the Margaret island, in the heart of the city. Special thanks to the OG Karlsruhe, Hans Schmidtmeister, Daniel Lütolf and Bob Wilson, without them this event could not have been created!
